Raider
Artist Raider

Raider is a young artist from the Netherlands.

His first released sculpture, SCOOP, is gaining a lot of interest among the few art collectors who could see some artist proofs that he left for a try in an Amsterdam Art Gallery. These first SCOOP sculptures found their collectors in the utmost tempo.

It took not long for the gallery to recognize his talent and professionalize the collaboration; the 18-year-old Raider became one of the youngest ever consigned artists in Europe.

With his sculpture SCOOP, artist Raider gave birth to a figure that seems to have its own life. It is adorable, cool, a real art object, something you love to look at forever. SCOOP needs no explanation. SCOOP catches your attention instantly.

Inspired by existing icons from pop music, cartoons, and movie culture, artist Raider is interested in creating sculptures and drawings, creatures or forms, and bringing them to life. He composes real characters!

As a child of his time, artist Raider uses the latest techniques and manufacturing processes. The artist manages to blur the lines between digital and analog and vice versa. He makes paintings, prints, silkscreens, and sculptures in an authentic and unique style.

Welcome to the fantastic world of Raider!

The Journey.: The journey of Raider and the life of SCOOP by Raider hast just begun.

The reality, Julius doesn’t have much to do with it. He wants to tell stories and likes to polish up reality a bit. His work often consists of manipulated situations: merged images, montages and films that can be seen on overwhelmingly large, meter-high and wide canvases or prints. “I tell little fairy tales with my work.” He likes big and impossible. No better motivation than someone who claims that something is not possible. There are no restrictions. Recurring elements in the work: masks, turns, reflections, contrasts: black-and-white, oldyoung, front becomes rear and bottom comes up. The classic frame is broken and enriched, by also showing the back of a photo, or photographing a production upside down. Reality is unmasked, or on the contrary gets a mask. The two-dimensionality is broken by playing with the question of what is shown outside the square frame. His work breaks the standard and dismantles the surface, tells about another world. Viewers are like a ballet dancer who has turned too many pirouettes: the image is discolored, perverted, appears to be incorrect, but at the same time looks fabulous. That is the essence of the work: wonder. The pleasure with which a story is told, playing impossibilities.
